Primo ingredients such as fior di latte mozzarella, prosciutto di parma, and house-made fennel sausage elevate traditional pizzas to the level of haute cuisine. Perennial favorites include the oh-so-San-Francisco clam pie, topped with cherrystone clams and hot peppers, and carbonara, a pizza form of the classic pasta dish with guanciale, farm egg, pecorino, and scallions.
